Helping Your Students Apply

GeoFORCE applications require transcripts from the end of 7th grade and fall of 8th grade, an essay from the student, and a letter of recommendation from a teacher, preferably in math or science. All of these things need to be submitted on-line either electronically (essays and recommendations) or scanned in (transcripts). Teachers and counselors can help by reminding students of the deadlines, and giving them computer access if they don’t have it at home. See the Student Application page for details.

GeoFORCE wants to make this process as easy as possible, so if there are technical problems that make it harder at your school to access the on-line system or scan in documents, please contact us and we can help.

If you would like a step-by-step process to help your students along the way, please download the following application tool:
